Hand, Foot, & Mouth

...except in our case it should be called Hand, Foot, Cookie, and Thighs.

Can someone please tell me how my child stays inside the house for almost a week straight and still contracts HFM?

SweetNibblets!

I noticed a few days ago that she had a few red bumps on her knees, but thought nothing of it because she has had some spots like that ever since she's been crawling. I just assumed it was from the carpet rubbing her knees. Then I noticed a crap load of them on her feet and I just knew it. I knew that she had Hand, Foot, & Mouth. She hasn't spiked a fever with it, but I can tell that the spots are slowly fading away.

There's nothing you can do for HFM except wait it out and let it run its course. Thankfully, she hasn't been fussy from this! It can be very contagious for the first few days so we've stayed inside mostly.

Except for that trip to Chik-Fil-A.

So, if you were in Homewood eating at CFA yesterday, avoid the high chairs :)

Anywhoozles, that's all for today. Adam is possibly locking down a job right now!
